Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Backup

I'm interested in studio work where members of the Dead sat in with other musicians. I am familiar with a few, my favorite being "Demon in Disguise" by David Bromberg (Jerry, Phil, Keith, Billy) and honorable mention going to Dylan's Silvio (Jerry, Bob, Brent on backing vocals.

SO what say all of you? Where else can the boys be found under others' names? What is worth checking out?

Admittedly, I would never have bought Ornette Coleman's Virgin Beauty album had there not been a certain guitarist hired to do some guest solos.

That is to say I would have PROBABLY never bought it.

How can we overlook Jerry's outstanding pedal steel guitar work on CSN&Y's "Teach Your Children"?. The story is that Jerry agreed to play on the track in exchange for some harmony lessons as the Dead were recording Workingman's Dead and American Beauty around this time.

Not to pick nits, BUT Crosby says obliquely in "Anthem to Beauty" flick that this story (singing lessons) is unfounded (I had heard it too).

The contribution of Jerry, nonetheless, is amazing.

I bet there was a trade of other sorts going on between Crosby and Garcia...one thing's for sure, you can bet your last dollar they were s-t-o-n-e-d.

funny you should say that. Check out the " dope rap" from the PERRO tapes. You can hear Garcia and Crosby and others discussing Jerry going to score a pound and who's car to take ect. Jerry definately wanted to cap how much HE was going to score ( bust factor ) and Crosby was making the case for how much they needed based on how much they already had smoked.

I wasn't overlooking that gem of a performance, but in posting I am hoping to find instances when members of the Dead appeared en masse on another artist's recording.

I don't remember the year--check the New Year's Eve show to find out--Mickey was dating Joan Baez, and he and Jerry and a few other members recorded an l.p. backing her. It is unreleased, though one or two songs made it on to one of her compilation cds.

Hearing Jerry playing backup on the Crosby-Nash record for the song "Laughing" is what lead me to the Grateful Dead.
I loved the feel of the ending of the song so much I read about who was playing and chased it down.

There was a Peter Rowan album from the mid 70's called Texican Badman (I think). Both Garcia and Kreutzmann appear on some tracks. Also, David Grisman and John Khan were in the back-up band. Garcia's solo on the tune "Sweet Melinda" is great.

Excellent points about collaboration with Airplane remnants...I really like those works with Garcia on lead. Great early 70s material.

What tunes did jerry play on zevon's transverse city?

I only discovered transverse city recently while researching a zevon show. Though I have yet to hear the album, Zevon seems to have had an amazing line-up (see below), just wonder how it turned out.

Any input would be appreciated, until I can get a copy to hear it myself.

Personnel: Warren Zevon (vocals, guitar, harmonica, piano, keyboards); Waddy Wachtel (acoustic & electric guitars); Jorma Kaukonen (acoustic guitar, background vocals); Mike Campbell (guitar, mandolin); Jerry Garcia, David Gilmour (guitar); David Lindley (lap steel guitar, saz, oud, background vocals); Howie Epstein (banjo, mandolin); Mark Isham (flugelhorn); Chick Corea (piano); Benmont Tench (organ); Bob Glaub, Jack Casady, John Patitucci (bass); Jorge Calderon (bass, background vocals); Richie Hayward (drums); Neil Young, J.D. Souther, Jordan Zevon (background vocals). Producers: Warren Zevon, Andrew Slater, Duncan Aldritch. Recorded at Mad Hatter Studios, Los Angeles, California.
